Our first order of business upon arriving in Hawaii(July 27-Aug. 4) was to meet this adorable little guy! We were finally able to hold, cuddle and kiss little Caleb, our newest grandchild! We sure love him! Lois is the new mommy and she is doing a great job! Look at how peaceful he is sleeping on her lap:) Jesse and Lois are having so much fun with him!
Our next order of business was to have FUN! We did our best to make it happen...Snorkeling at Shark's Cove(and other spots), Dole Plantation, Swimming to Chinaman's Hat, bowling, hiking, eating at Ted's Bakery, Brian BBQing for us, Jake Shimabukuro concert, Waimea Bay(and the guys jumping off the rocks), Waikiki, A birthday bash with garlic shrimp(Thanks to Jesse's friend), Turtle Beach, International Marketplace, playing Scattergories, shaved ice...and topping it off was Caleb's blessing( see 3 posts back), given by Jesse, with Johnny, Brian and Jim (and others) participating!

Zeke became locked in the car(in his car seat and the keys on the front seat) at Ted's Bakery, but the Sunset Beach Fire Dept. came to our rescue, with the sirens wailing!!! I still owe them some cookies!
